Description Helmut Jarausch 2014-02-22 12:42:44 UTC
The file /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/maxima/dbl.el which
is installed by the maxima package has
(require 'gcl)
and uses gcl-mode in several places.

But gcl is hard-masked in the current tree.
I'm using Maxima with dev-lisp/sbcl.
Is there a fix for dbl.el anywhere?
Shouldn't dbl.el depend on the Lisp-variant USE flag of Maxima?

Confirmed.

Not all lisp variants supported by maxima comes with emacs support (only gcl and ecls have an emacs USE flag). sbcl does not, and nothing ensures maxima's dbl is compatible with ecls elisp files.

I don't see any solution from the lisp packages point of view, apart from emerging dev-lisp/gcl[emacs], which is now in the tree (but has numerous build issues).

Maybe einfo notes in postinstall when use emacs and ! use gcl?
